Nanaimo Arts Council Dreams Big!
We could really use your support!
The NAC’s current goal is to establish a community arts space in Nanaimo, similar to the Old School House in Qualicum Beach or the McMillan Arts Centre in Parksville. Nanaimo is the only city in BC that doesn’t have a dedicated community arts facility.

About Us

For almost fifty years NAC has played an integral part in the incubation and development of many of Nanaimo’s now autonomous organizations and events including the Port Theatre and the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music. NAC has worked hard to both support creators and develop audiences and is now actively involved in blurring the line between them.

"Nanaimo Arts Council acknowledges with gratitude that we are on the traditional and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation."
